The Best Security in Banking and Finance Is Not a Safe Vault.

The best security is effective risk awareness and the right insurance and risk management practices, including a strong insurance program.

At PayneWest Insurance, we are dedicated to identifying, quantifying, creating and executing plans to reduce over-all risk, and to address the unique exposures that financial entities face. Our specialists are well versed in bank risk and insurance, and they provide unparalleled service and solutions to bank management and boards throughout the Northwest. That is why we are endorsed by bank clients and associations including the Montana Independent Bankers.

Whether addressing the current regulatory expectations for enhanced cyber risk management, or the expanding risk and exposure to executives and board members from management decisions, the PayneWest specialists provide a responsive and highly capable resource. Our team can deliver guidance and assistance in areas such as FDIC required vendor and contract risk, OREO property and liability risks, or assisting in credit and loan administration issues from borrower risks to insurance certificate training.

These services are wrapped along with insurance market place expertise and clout to secure the most comprehensive and cost effective insurance coverage structures available to community banks. And for those occasional times when the insurance expected is not delivered in a claim scenario, the PayneWest Claim Team stands ready to partner with our clients on the navigation of complex claims.

With 29 offices in the northwest, PayneWest Insurance delivers bank and finance expertise with localized world-class service to our Financial Institution clients.
